quickly i know it's been a long day madame chair on this cruise terminal it has already been out the operator r rfp it's out now and due early february, i think. so what happens is the port staff and maritime they interview the different operator and is then they come back here to the board with recommendation and so we will establish a selection and panel which will include some internal staff and a lot of sternal folks based on the score of of r f q's we will come up with a selection for oral interviews all of which is over seen by the human right commission and then formerlily to your point, we will come back to the commission with a recommendation for the highest ranked firm. >> okay what i would like if you could possibly bring back two names, i think that would be good and i would like to have them come so that the commissioners we can talk it hem and sometimes we give them one but i would like two operators that are good that we can talk too i would like to do that. okay hopefully we are going to have that many hopefully more i don't that is good i hope you have ten but
teachers and those who reminded us we are all part of the same american family. madam president, i yield the floor. a senator: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from vermont. mr. leahy: before the senator from illinois leaves the floor, i commend him for his statement statement, first on his nominee for illinois judgeship, something that's been delayed far too long through no fault of the senator from illinois. madam president, this weekend was a very difficult and trying weekend, for our families and so many other families, nothing compared to the families in newtown, of course. i pretty much stayed off the phone, spent time with children and grandchildren. made an exception for a couple of phone calls with the distinguished senior senator from illinois. i told him when we come back in a couple of weeks in the new congress, i'll work with him to make sure the senate judiciary committee has full and thorough hearings on the subjects he's just talked about. just as he stated here so eloquently and as he did in his television interviews this weekend. it is the time to hav
it before us that we can see what we're talking about in terms of cost. >> so, madam chair, if i could, may i ask for the permission to fund the position from my salary savings for this current yearv, placing the full salary in the draft budget, for the board then to determine the efficacy of the position in june with some measurements and we will show you in advance to get your approval on. and then come june if the position does not hold as much value as you would expected it to, that salary could be removed from the department's budget. >> that is a problem i see. once you hire someone, it is very hard and very difficult to actually not -- to say that you're going to terminate that position. >> we can hire them with the expectation that this is a pilot program to be determined by the board. >> right. i guess the other question that it raises for me is what metrics are we using to say what the value of that extra employee would be for this purpose. and, so, not kind of understanding what those metrics would be would be hard. would it be the number of engagements that they have, the number
, madam secretary. obviously welcome everyone here today, the last meeting before the end of the year. we will wish everybody happy holidays. so what we have is acting director tom huey participated in a media briefing at the site of the hacker pool house with the director of recreation and parks, phil ginsburg. dbi acting director huey signed an emergency order early letter this month when a fire caused sufficient structural damage to make the building an imminent public safety hazard. demolition is currently underway. bill pointed out to me a very interesting article in the front of the san francisco chronicle today is good to give you history on that. the fire department and one of the equipment manufacturers have donated new carbon monoxide detections and smoke detectors which dbi will give away to the public during our outreach event. we are delighted to give away these devices and assurance compliance with state law requiring their installation both in single family homes, and that's effective january 1, 2013, and multi family homes also. also we are having a modest get together,
items at the next commission meeting. madam clerk if you could please call item number seven. >> item number seven executive's officer's report. >> miss miller. >> we have election of officers in january -- i really don't have a report unless you want to talk about the joint hearing that we had with the sf puc. we are looking for dates in february for the next one but other than that that concludes my reports. >> commissioners, any comments or questions? >> any member of the public what would like to speak? seeing none public comment is closed and i'm not sure when to make this throat, but as i. >> >> understand it this is our last lafco meeting of calendar year and because of that it probably is the last meeting that we will have commissioner olague sitting in as a member of lafco for at least for the time being, and so i just -- on a very personal note i want to take this opportunity to thank commissioner olague for her service on the local agency formation commission. it really has been an honor and you have provided a tremendous contribution. i think it's definitely the case th
comment. and madam clerk do we have any other items before us? >> no mr. chr app >> the public wants to access particular information about your house or neighborhood we point them to gis. gis is a combination of maps and data. not a graphic you see on a screen. you get the traffic for the streets the number of crimes for a police district in a period of time. if the idea of combining the different layerce of information and stacking them on top of each other to present to the public. >> other types of gis are web based mapping systems. like google earth, yahoo maps. microsoft. those are examples of on line mapping systems that can be used to find businesses or get driving directions or check on traffic conditions. all digital maps. >> gis is used in the city of san francisco to better support what departments do. >> you imagine all the various elements of a city including parcels and the critical infrastructure where the storm drains are. the city access like the traffic lights and fire hydrants. anything you is represent in a geo graphic space with be stored for retrieval and an
of the higher tax cuts. any questions? >> madam leader, the response from the publicans today was instantaneous. mr. cantor just finished saying that they were not going to raise rates. what is your response to that? given that line in the sand, where does this process stand? >> let me say that there are three elements to this -- growth, reduction in spending, and raising revenue. we have voted for -- the democrats have voted for over $1 trillion in cuts and spending. that was part of the budget control act. that is part of how we should go forward. you cannot speak about reducing the deficit without talking about raising revenue. i think the president has taken his message to the american. i hope the republicans will listen to that. in the republican caucus -- i'm usually the last person to speak -- i know many members of them are ready to vote for middle income tax cuts. then mckinley the subject of rates and all the rest of that for next year -- and then we can be the subject of rates and all the rest of that for next year and whatever we would do under a broader tax reform package. >> [inau

and -- an adversary today will be an ally tomorrow. is a rare occasion for acrimony to turn personal. madame president, it would be my party's hope that this collegiality will not be lost, protecting the rights of the minority has assured that every senator's voices are heard and every state represented and heard as intended by our constitution. opened debate and open amendments are what differentiate the senate from the house. when our committees function we pass bills and vigorous markups, put the bills in shape for floor debate. if they don't go through committees and are not allowed 4 minutes the quality of the legislation suffers and mistakes are often made. let me give you some examples of how relationships can produce results. during the anthrax scare, the hart building was closed for a month which made it very difficult of course for senators based there to do their work. so senator dianne feinstein's staff joined in my office in the russell building. my chief of staff at the time gave them full access. one of senator feinstein's staff members commented on that. republican office giving democr

. and we have a second. supervisor weiner. >> thank you, madam chair, i'm not on the committee but i thought this was important enough i wanted to be here for the item. i just wanted to associate myself with supervisor farrell's remarks, these are all exceptional candidates, clearly the mayor did a terrific job in vetting and coming up with a good slate for this commission so i'm very supportive. >> thank you, supervisor weiner, thank you for being here. >> thank you, chair kim, i actually had the opportunity to meet with all the candidates, each and every one of them over the past few days, mostly last week. i appreciate their reaching out to me. i was not able to meet with miss mondajar, she was able to talk to one of my staff members. i will be supporting all the candidates. i do appreciate the effort to reach out to get a lot of expertise, a lot of experience, a lot of diversity for this commission. i think it's very vital commission that can set the tone for how other commissions can work in san francisco but certainly to carry out the remaining work for these project area
presentation and we look forward to working with you. unless there are other comments madam clerk if you could call item four please. >> item number four, 2013 lafco meeting schedule. >> great. colleagues, as we're nearing the end of the calendar year this is our opportunity to talk about what our calendar looks like for the next coming calendar year, and i think you have a memo in your packets that's also available to members of the public that provides some recommendations from staff as to when our meetings could take place, so with that i will turn it over to mr. fried. >> thank you very much. jason freed and tradition with lafco i tried to make all of the meetings the fourth friday of the month and with some exceptions and there is a break in august and then for november and december because of the holidays we try and combine one meeting at the beginning of december and we normally -- there are only two board supervisor meetings then so this is the friday that falls between the board meeting and the final adaption to that fourth friday is in may and it leads into a three day weekend wher
in this seat. >> sure. thank you, madam chair and supervisors. thank you for your time today. i did believe that i am the right person for this seat and i welcome this opportunity to discuss my candidacy further. i work in the economic development department in the lgbt center in market and octavia. i also commute to work on muni every day and i am invested in this area's development. i have the background and leadership experience in community development and i am committed to bringing the needs of low income residents to the forefront in this seat. along with an understanding of gentrification and displacement about how that will adversely affect long time residents of this area, in particular the low income and lgbt community when you talk about breaking support networks and eroding political power, i also understand a lot of the core land use issues as well. in particular housing and again while i understand that this cac doesn't formally get involved until permits are filed, one of my real priorities in this seat is affordable housing and rental options, in particular given how muc

. altmire: thank you, madam speaker. i appreciate it. i will not speak for nearly 60 minutes. i'm tempted to engage the gentleman, my good friend, mr. woodall, in debate, but i won't do that because i know he's still smarting from his bulldog's loss over the weekend and i'm going to let him continue to think about that. i very much enjoy the friendship and camaraderie with mr. woodall, we do have a difference of opinion on some of those issues. before i start, madam speaker, i would say to the group, the individual who will be speaking following my presentation, that i plan to only speak for about five minutes. or less. so this will not be an hour-long presentation. so the speaker who will follow me on the majority side i would recommend they hang near the floor because i will be wrapping up shortly. madam speaker, i rise to commemorate the 50th anniversary of laroche college. founded in 1963 by the sisters of divine providence in mccandliss, pennsylvania, a suburb of pittsburgh, it was named in honor of ma reap laroche, the first superior of the congregation of the sister of divine provi
session. mr. reid: madam president, i ask unanimous consent that we now proceed to a period of morning business and that senators are allowed to speak for up to ten minutes each. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: madam president, i ask unanimous consent the senate proceed to calendar number 246, s. 1792. the presiding officer: the clerk will report. the clerk: calendar numbered 246, s. 1792, a bill to clarify the authority of the united states marshals service and so forth. the presiding officer: without objection, the senate will proceed to the measure. mr. reid: i ask unanimous consent the bill be read a third time, passed, the motion to reconsider be laid on the table, there being no intervening action or debate and that any statements related to this matter be placed in the record at the appropriate place as if read. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. reid: i now ask we proceed to calendar numbered 233, s. 1793. the presiding officer: the clerk will report. the clerk: calendar 233, s. 1793, a bill to amend title 28 united states code, and so forth and f
: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from vermont. mr. sanders: i would ask unanimous consent to be able to speak as if in morning business until senator leahy arrives. the presiding officer: without objection. mr. sanders: thank you. madam president, what i was just suggesting is there are ways to do deficit reduction that are fair. the first point, in terms of $4 trillion over a ten-year period, we have already cut over $1 trillion in terms of spending , $1.1 trillion. number two, i think the president is right in suggesting that we have got to ask for significant revenue from the wealthiest people in this country, the top 2% without asking for any tax increases for the bottom 98%. and that would add $1.6 trillion in revenue, bringing us somewhere around $2.7 trillion. so we have a $1.3 trillion problem. that is not over a ten-year period a difficult problem to solve. let me just throw out a few ideas, and i'm sure other people have equally good ideas. madam president, before you cut social security, medicare and medicaid, we might want to address the reality that th
reform. madam president, what i have done today is to lay out a way -- and i know other senators will have ideas and i hope they will bring them to the floor, but i have laid out a way for us to raise the debt ceiling by around a trillion dollars and in return have entitlement reform on a dollar-for-dollar basis, saving and reforming these programs so that seniors in the future certainly will have the opportunity to continue these programs that you depend upon so much and the young people, the young people that are coming behind us will have the certainty that we asthma tour adults i hope have dealt with these issues in an appropriate way. so, madam president, i thank you and i yield the floor. mr. president? the presiding officer: the senator from tennessee. mr. corker: i notice the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: mr. merkley: madam president? the presiding officer: the senator from oregon is recognized. mr. merkley: i ask the quorum call be set aside. the presiding officer: without objection, so ordered. mr. merkley: thank
. and thank you so much. and i yield back the balance of my time. mr. burton: madam speaker, let me just follow up on what was just said and say that barney frank and i had a lot of differences over the years, but we also found times we could work together and we co-sponsored a bill together one time. barney and your colleague, i wish you both the very best and hopefully we will run into each other. let me make a couple of comments to my two colleagues who are going to follow me on this special order who told me if i talked too long they will hit me in the head with a ball bat. i want to say a couple of things. daniel inouye, senator inouye, i never met, but i read in the paper many years ago, the ex ploits of daniel inouye when he was in the military yu young man. his family put in a camp in world war ii and volunteered to go into the military. he became an outstanding member of the military. and in italy, he did -- there were exploits that he performed that won him the congressional medal of honor. and you don't get that unless you are an extraordinary human being. he took out an enemy
to the ideas that work. thank you, madame president. i thank my colleagues. i yield the floor. >> republican kay bailey hutchinson is also retiring. she was elected to the u.s. senate in 1993. she served as vice-chairman of the public and conference -- republican conference. she gave her farewell address last week. it is half an hour. >> madame president, i am proud to just this chamber for possibly the last time as a senator from the great state of texas. it is an ironic note that if i had given my farewell address last week, there would have been so much joy in the halls of the capitol, ringing with laughter and anticipation of our season's happiest time. but in one weekend, a sadness has set in with the news of a massacre of innocent children in newtown, connecticut. that was followed by the loss of our wonderful colleague, senator yue.el inoyoue.o i leave with a heavy heart just in the last few days. i want to thank the people of texas for asking me to represent them in washington. i want to thank the many people who have served on my staff for almost 20 years. i have to say that i am to
that work. thank you, madam president. and i thank my colleagues. i yield the floor and note >> republican senator kay bailey hutchison is also retiring. she was the first woman to represent texas in the senate. she served as vice president of the chairman and senator hutchison choice not to seek re-election. this is half an hour. address this chamber for possibly the last time as the senior senator from the great state of texas. have to say it is an ironic note that if i had given my farewell address last week, it would have been so much joy in the halls of the citol ringing with the laughter and the anticipation of our season's happiest time, but in just one weekend a sadness has set in with the news of a massacre of innocent children in newtown, connecticut, followed by the loss of our wonderful colleague, senator danny inouye so i will leave this extraordinary institution and experience with a heavy heart for those who have been lost just in the last few days. i do want to thank the people of texas for asking me to represent them in washingto i want to thank the many peopl who have ser
